Julien’s Auctions announced on Monday (Dec. 21) the lineup of star-studded items up for bidding at MusiCares Charity Relief Auction.
Among the items up for auction are a black jacket worn by Van Halen singer David Lee Roth; a 2018 Mondo Scripto print with Bob Dylan’s handwritten lyrics to “Like A Rolling Stone” on one side and the drawing on the other signed by the legend, plus a hardcover copy of Dylan’s 2004 book Chronicles signed on the inside; and Pete Townsend’s blue boiler suit and long beige linen “kimono” coat.
Billie Eilish, Finneas and Daniel Craig signed a “No Time To Die” single cover lithograph, Lady Gaga signed a Chromatica vinyl LP, Machine Gun Kelly autographed a pink guitar, The Foo Fighters signed drumheads, Taylor Hawkins signed a pair of used drumsticks, Black Pumas’ Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada autographed a Fender Player Series Stratocaster guitar, movie poster artist Drew Struzan signed Alice Cooper’s Welcome To My Nightmare 1975 album lithograph, Nikki Sixx signed a signature J-4 Sixx bass guitar and Marshmello autographed a mascot head gear for the upcoming event.
Making a special appearance is a painting of Chris Martin by Billy Morrison. “I wanted to create a piece that talks about how, at this time more than ever, music is incredibly important and the language of love,” Morrison said of the piece in a press statement. “I think Chris Martin encapsulates for so many that language.”
The event precedes the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards telecast, with proceeds going toward MusiCares, which helps those in the music industry devastated by COVID-19 by providing a support system of health and human services.
“Partners like Julien’s Auctions allow MusiCares to continue to support musicians and industry professionals with our relief efforts,” said Laura Segura, executive director of MusiCares. “During Grammy week, we want to encourage everyone to support the thousands of people behind the scenes of the music that are still out of work and struggling through the pandemic.”
Previously, BTS offered a group of pastel-colored ensembles worn in their “Dynamite” music video for the auction.
The bidding will take place on January 31, 2021 in Beverly Hills and online at juliensauctions.com.
